I wanted to make Guts Man look like a formidable powerhouse that’s used to crushing rocks and lifting shipping containers. He had to have a battered, beat up and abused look. Like he’s constantly left out in the rain, hail and shine.
I liked the idea that a Met robot, simply sat inside the larger body. Like you could fit one in any number of body shapes and they would be able to operate them. My design for the Picket Man uses the same idea.
